Lancaster, c. 1770: detail
Engraved for The Universal Magazine of Knowledge and Pleasure vol. 61 (1777). Based
on Samuel and Nathaniel Buck's Prospect (1732), so somewhat out of date.
N.b. the tower of the Priory Church before the rebuilding (starting 1753, so completed by the
time this was printed) — see detail, and
the old bridge across the Lune, demolished in 1802 — see detail.
See the entire image.
